Cannot install ICE on Windows 8.1 Pro RRS feed

  • Question

  • I saw the post for this same topic but there are no links or hints, etc. so I will post this again:

    ICE does not install on Windows 8.1 Pro:  The C++ redistributable is missing - but it isn't.  The installer does not recognize the newer version which is already installed (the x64 version) and so, the installer fails.  This is probably a cool program, but it isn't working on the latest platform.  Can something be done about this?

  • Good news and bad news. The good news is that ICE 1.4.0 *does* install under Win 8.1 Pro. The bad news is I'm not sure whether I have something else already on the system that made the installer work. It may be related to a few programs that needed .NET Framework 3.5 (instructions here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh506443%28v=vs.110%29.aspx).
